The Marist International University College is founded on Christian principles in general and on the Marist philosophy in particular. The educational philosophy encourages a partnership of Brothers and Lay people, together in mission in the Church and in the world, working to promote the education of the young especially the most neglected in schools and other pastoral and social ministries.
Our Mission: To provide holistic education that will equip the students with Christian values, knowledge and skills for the work of Christian education and development of society.
Our Vision: To be a leading international educational institution that forms graduates who are agents of liberation, transformation and development of humanity. This is in tandem with our motto: "You are the Light of the World"
Our style of educating at Marist International University College is based on a vision that is truly holistic, and that consciously seeks to communicate values. While we share such a vision with many, especially in Church circles, we use a distinctive pedagogical approach that Marcellin and the first Marists initiated and which was innovative in many of its aspects.
We share their intuition that "to bring up children properly, we must love them, and love them all equally". From this principle flow the particular characteristics of the Marist style of educating: presence, simplicity, family spirit, love of work, and following the way of Mary (A Vision for Marist Education, 1998, #97 & 98). These five qualities inform how we carry out our mission.
Marist International University College aims to provide holistic quality training, conduct scientific research, reach out to communities and graduate students who are transformative leaders in education, corporate, and development Sectors, through value based education.
Enlightened and strengthened by the Marist spirituality of passion for God and compassion for people, Marist International University College focuses on disciplined and value-based strategies that provide programmes and services for the education of young people, especially the most neglected, for responsible and productive living in society.
We pay special attention to the following values
